Overall in very good condition. The wood has been reconditioned to revitalize the rich ebony surface at some point in the history of the piece. The ebony presents with extremely light surface scratches throughout. The inner surface of the uppermost ring with a small surface imperfection to the ebony likely inherent to the making. The adjustable leather cord has likely been sensitively replaced and is in excellent condition.
